Diagnosis

Females of Lasioglossum minckleyi  sp. nov. can be recognized by the face short (length/width ratio ~0.8), frons and mesepisternum with coarse and crowded punctures (i =0 pd), clypeus with distinct apicolateral denticles, T1 anterior surface corarious, T2–4 with dark spiracular spots, metasomal terga lacking tomentum, and mesoscutum broad (length/width ratio usually ≤ 0.8). They are most similar to L. mesillense  and L. imbriumbrae  sp. nov. Both of these species usually have the frons and mesepisternum with finer or distinctly separated punctures at least in part, T1 anterior surface shiny, and metasomal terga with basolateral tomentum. Occasional specimens of L. mesillense  lack some of these diagnostic characters, and are very difficult to distinguish from L. minckleyi  sp. nov. Females of L. mesillense  also have the mesoscutum longer (length/width ratio usually ± 0.84); this and the frons punctation seem to be the most reliable diagnostic characters.

Males of L. minckleyi  sp. nov. can be recognized by the face short (length/width ratio ~0.83) and covered in moderately dense tomentum below the ocelli, flagellomeres relatively short (F2 about 1.6 times as long as F1 and 1.25 times as long as broad), mesepisternum punctures dense (i <1 pd), metasomal terga lacking tomentum, T1–3 rims punctate basally, and clypeus apical margin and labrum usually orange. They are most similar to L. mesillense  , L. austerum  sp. nov., and L. imbriumbrae  sp. nov. Males of L. mesillense  have the flagellomeres relatively long (F2 about 2 times as long as F1 and 1.6 times as long as broad), mesepisternum more sparsely punctate (i= 1–2 pd), and metasomal terga sometimes with basolateral tomentum. Males of L. austerum  sp. nov. have the face below ocelli covered in sparser tomentum and mesepisternum more sparsely punctate (i ≤ 1 pd). Males of L. imbriumbrae  sp. nov. have T1–3 rims impunctate and clypeus apical margin and labrum reddish brown to black.

Etymology

The specific epithet minckleyi  is a dedication to Robert L. Minckley (University of Rochester), who collected the vast majority of currently known specimens. An appropriate translation would be Minckley’s sweat bee.

DNA barcodes

Three sequences available (BOLD process IDs: DLII775-07, DLII1555-09, DLII1572-09; BIN: BOLD:AAJ1796). Lasioglossum minckleyi  sp. nov. differs from all other western red-tailed L. ( Dialictus  ) by 2 fixed substitutions: 348(C) and 510(G) (Supplementary file 4).

Remarks

The vast majority of known specimens are from Minckley’s collections in the San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge and Rancho San Bernardino (summarized in Minckley 2008). Lasioglossum minckleyi  sp. nov. seems to be uncommon outside of this area.
